When calling the black Indian ink calligraphies by Israeli artist Ronit Bigal minimal art, it’s actually meant literally. Her work is composed of tiny Hebrew letters and it takes thousands of them to cover the skin. In the photographs, her work almost appears like abstract landscapes or carpets made of letters that seem so haptic, you feel like you could read them by touching them with your fingers.
